Color CMOS UXGA (1600x1200) Image Sensor with OmniPixel3-HS™ Technology

The OV2685 is a cost-effective, low-power 2-megapixel CameraChip™ sensor for feature phones and front-facing camera applications in smartphones and tablets. The 1/5-inch sensors leverage a 1.75-micron OmniPixel3-HS™ pixel to deliver high quality 2-megapixel images and video at 30 frames per second (fps). The sensor's high sensitivity and low dark current deliver exceptional image and video quality, even in low-light conditions.

The OV2685 is a cost-effective upgrade solution to the OV2659 & OV2675 CameraChip sensors with a smaller footprint and smaller die size.

Compared to previous generations, the OV2685 offers improved image quality with the latest OmniPixel3-HS pixel architecture. Using OmniVision's proprietary sensor technology, the sensor reduces or eliminates common lighting and electrical sources of image contamination, such as fixed pattern noise, smearing, etc., to produce a clean, stable, color image.

The OV2685 features a single-lane MIPI interface, which allows for a simple design with modern basebands.
